Ramaphosa must take tough decisions that will raise confidence in economy - Busa
Business Unity South Africa (Busa) on Tuesday hosted its second Business Economic Indaba where it warned President Cyril Ramaphosa against an over-emphasis on seeking consensus when making decisions.
Busa says business has a crucial role to play in the country's social and economic revival and urgent and focused discussion with government are needed to make the revival happen.
Bongani Bingwa chats to the organisation's acting chief executive officer Cas Coovadia to give insight on the Indaba.
We need decisions that will raise confidence in the economy. We have said that many of our policies are not too bad, we don't have a problem with policy but it is the mixed messages coming from government that are a problem.Cas Coovadia, Acting CEO - Busa
The government and the business fraternity needs to be on the same page to say that the critical issue is to get investment in the country, he adds.
He needs to rise above the political framework and act as president of the country and do what is in the interest of the country.Cas Coovadia, Acting CEO - Busa
